It was another nice late-summer weekend in these parts and we spent considerable time outdoors. I still managed to wade into several state QSO party events. I worked 20 of the 1x1 stations in the Kansas QSO Party and managed a dozen more in the Ohio QSO Party. All on phone.
Also worked a handful of Hawaiian stations on 40 phone. One fellow was located on some island in the Phillipines an hour south of Manila who was running his station in Hawaii remotely.
I wouldn’t have known had he not told me. Interesting!
I’m not certain I’ll send my scores for these. I hadn’t planned a serious effort in any of the three and only spent a few minutes picking off the loudest stations. Still, I enjoy and try to support these State QP’s as they keep the bands busy and the service humming.
